Kindergarten, Media Wall, Dictatorship

These are the three assignments I would really like to do this semester.

  1. Finger Painting for Cave Painting
  2. Make a video representation of the timeline of the entire class
  3. Develop a propaganda campaign, create a false dictatorship
  • OR Develop a radio broadcast or news anchor interview about an event

 

The breakdown:

1. Finger Painting for Cave Painting

Tools:

  • Different colors of paint
  • Large pieces of paper
  • Paper towels
  • Soap

I think it important to remember that communication does need the use of technology. People can communicate through hand signs, body language, and pictures. For the assignment, we would have to convey a story about a certain piece of communication technology, or a type of communication, and then the medium would be finger painting.

 

2. Make a video representation of the timeline of the entire class

Tools/Software:

  • iMovie or Final Cut Pro
  • Audacity
  • Mac OS
  • Creative Commons Images
  • Digital camera and/or camcorder*
  • Microphone

*if we take our own pictures or video for the representation of different technologies, eras, or types of communication

I think this assignment would make a nice addition to the timeline and database we are creating and it would be really cool to be able to showcase it on the media wall.

 

3. Develop a propaganda campaign, create a false dictatorship

  • OR Develop a radio broadcast or news anchor interview about an event

-As long as we could do at least one of these assignments, I would be really happy! ^_^

Tools/Software for both assignments:

  • iMovie or Final Cut Pro
  • Audacity
  • Mac OS
  • Digital camera
  • Camcorder
  • Microphone
  • Photoshop
  • Green Room
  • Projectors

The propaganda assignment would utilize a nearly all of the technology that the ITCC has to offer. From using the sound booth, to displaying content on the media wall and the other TVs across the various rooms, we could emulate what a real propaganda campaign would like it if the ITCC were run by a dictator. Since this kind of intense propaganda campaign actually has happened in other countries (i.e. North Korea, China) it would be cool to try to recreate it.

 

Developing a radio broadcast or news anchor interview about an event would also use everything the ITCC has to offer. Depending on which option the group chooses, the sound booth and/or the green room would definitely be a great space(s) to use for this assignment.
